Professional reviews

"Listeners looking to add some excitement to their history lessons are sure to be thrilled with Will Collyer and Brian Delaney's take on the Civil War. Ben Thompson includes fascinating and true facts about the warÑtopics run the gamut from female spies to battle strategies. Collyer narrates the main text and creates excitement within each tale. Delaney voices the end notes, facts and lists included at the end of each chapter, and offers a nice balance between detail and humor. A great listen for middle schoolers.
